Oh no I do believe you I am just sayin that a lot of times people have to out-do the last one haha. I am willing to bet there are some old timers with no gauges that have a few miles on em too. Any guesses as to the next highest mileage?
I've never heard of any higher than that XCR. Second highest I've seen is very close to 10000 on a 1995 Indy 440, it was like 9800 or something. I remember when that one blew, it was like 45 degrees out and we were rippin around a corner, suddenly she just slow way down. Max RPM @ WOT was like 5600. and it made this very interesting sound.
those are the only high mile machines I know of without major repair. Everything else I've heard of has gone poof around 6000 miles. +/- 1000 miles.
My sled has about 5500 miles on it and still runs great! I have to keep an eye on the oil level, but other than that, no problems. I think it's just a case of a consistant maintainence plan during the season and when you put 'em to sleep after the season ends. (notice no sled type used here! Pretty cool, eh? lol)
